It’s Christmas! It’s Christmas! Actually, no… it’s just a Tuesday. But dammit, when Chuck Palahniuk has a new novel out, it feels like Christmas! Today, Beautiful You, Chuck’s 14th novel (16th book!) is out in stores. And you know what that means, right? A billion husbands are about to be replaced! If you haven’t already gobbled up this book, here’s the description from Amazon:
Penny Harrigan is a low-level associate in a big Manhattan law firm with an apartment in Queens and no love life at all. So it comes as a great shock when she finds herself invited to dinner by one C. Linus Maxwell, a software mega-billionaire and lover of the most gorgeous and accomplished women on earth. After dining at Manhattan’s most exclusive restaurant, he whisks Penny off to a hotel suite in Paris, where he proceeds, notebook in hand, to bring her to previously undreamed-of heights of gratification for days on end. What’s not to like? This: Penny discovers that she is a test subject for the final development of a line of feminine products to be marketed in a nationwide chain of boutiques called Beautiful You. So potent and effective are these devices that women by the millions line up outside the stores on opening day and then lock themselves in their room with them and stop coming out. Except for batteries. Maxwell’s plan for battery-powered world domination must be stopped. But how?
If you buy the book in a store, be sure to Tweet us at @ChuckPalahniuk with a picture.

male teachers arent allowed to dress code female students anymore at my school because somebody pointed out that if they had been dress coded for their shorts/skirt being too short or their bra showing by a male teacher, that meant said male teacher was looking at her ass and boobs i am laughing my fucking ass off
where is the lie tho
how many times do doctors need to confirm that lack of sleep is physically and emotionally harming high school students because of how early they have to be up before someone will give enough of a shit about these kids’ health to actually change something

1:What would you name your future daughter?

3:What if I told you that you were pretty?
I would do the compliment hunch and tell you you’re wrong.
5:What are you looking forward to in the next week?
Pumpkin/Apple picking, Suicide Girls, Wings vs. Penguins game, and just being with Elliott all weekend :3

Fucking 10 pm. I was exhausted and was two Benadryl deep.
9:What were you doing at 12:30 this afternoon?
I was eating lunch, I believe.
11:Could you go for the rest of your life without drinking alcohol?
If it was detrimental to my health, I guess. Just as a life choice, then no.
13:Could you go the rest of your life without smoking a cigarette?
Probably. I’m not a smoker anymore, but sometimes I get a craving.
15:Is it hard for you to get over someone?
It depends on the person and the duration of the relationship (if there was one), as well as how it ended. Usually it takes a while, but not recently.

Nope, just next to the bed.

All the god damn time.

29:Were your last three kisses from the same person?
On the lips? Yes. I kissed my mom on the cheek when she came home today.

Every once in a while. Since my hair is usually in a messy bun, it’s a bit hard.

Yes, and I hope to go again very soon. I miss my future home :(
